Man Utd boss Ferguson bemused by victory over Arsenal

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits victory over Arsenal left him bemused.

Robin van Persie and Patrice Evra struck for United in the 2-1 win.

Ferguson admitted it failed to live up to previous encounters between the two old rivals.

Asked for his verdict on the game, Ferguson told Sky Sports 2HD: "I think I need to sleep on it, I could not believe the chances we missed.

"We should have put it to bed a long, long time ago and you look at that scoreline 2-1 and you think it was a close game, but it wasn't a close game.

"I think there was a lack of urgency in our game throughout, far too casual. It was an unusual Manchester UnitedArsenal game really.

"I know there were a lot of bookings, but it didn't get anywhere near the Manchester United-Arsenal games of the past, nowhere near it."
